Faded Glamour Nostalgia Revisited
by Rebecca Kain

Faded Glamour was born of a journey. It was a journey that took Redcurrent’s co-founder Rebecca Kain back in time to the lives of her grandmothers, their homes and their way of living. Along the way she recorded what she saw, what she found and how she felt. And en route Rebecca came to appreciate something that inspired her to write this book. She discovered that nostalgia, so often dismissed as misty-eyed sentimentalism, can be a powerfully positive force. That it need not be solely about memories, but can be a defining way of life, here and now. This book is named for the phrase Rebecca came to use to describe this way of living. Faded Glamour. Faded Glamour is as much a style and a way of thinking as it is a book. It is built on a belief that the best things get better with time, developing a patina that comes with human use and love. It is the antidote to the contemporary tendency to ‘contrive’ or purchase a look. It lives in homes where little is discarded because value and beauty are seen to grow with age. Through its timelessness Faded Glamour is thus about the future as much as the past. It is a way of life from which the modern world has much to gain. It is hoped that Faded Glamour will give people the confidence to express themselves free of the chains of fashion. To enjoy a lifetime of layering the things they value, they love and which forms their story. Photography by Florence Charvin.
